Trevor Sinclair is a former professional footballer and former assistant manager of Lancaster City.

Trevor played in the Premier League and made 12 appearances for England, including four at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. He retired in 2008, after 19 years in the professional game.

He began his career at Blackpool in 1989, becoming the club's youngest ever player at 16 years and five months.

In 1993, Trevor moved to Queens Park Rangers. While there he scored his infamous bicycle kick in the FA Cup, for which he won the BBC's Match of the Day "Goal of the Season" competition. It was outside the penalty box, and yes we still hear about it today!

After three years at QPR, Trevor moved to West Ham United where he was a regular over the next two seasons and won his England caps. He was widely regarded as one of England's best players in the 2002 World Cup.

Following’s West Ham's relegation, he joined Manchester City in 2003 and went on to score City's first goal at the new City of Manchester Stadium in a UEFA Cup tie.

He later joined Cardiff City in 2007 and in April 2008 faced his first club, Blackpool, for the first time since leaving them fifteen years earlier. He scored Cardiff's second goal in a 3–1 win, refusing to celebrate his goal. On 17 May he made an 86th-minute substitute appearance in the 2008 FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.

Trevor worked as a presenter and pundit in Dubai and since returning to England has really made his mark in the media. He is a MOTD and Football Focus favourite, and is fast becoming something of a style icon.
